LSU Closed October 9, 2020 due to Hurricane Delta

 LSU will be closed on Friday, Oct. 9, due to Hurricane Delta. All classes and activities scheduled for Friday -- whether in-person or virtual -- are cancelled. This closure includes the University Laboratory School, the LSU Early Childhood Education Laboratory Preschool, and all on-campus COVID-19 testing locations. 

Students who live on campus should shelter in place during the storm by remaining indoors and keeping in contact with Residential Life staff for any instructions.

Essential employees should check with their supervisors about whether to report to work on Friday. Non-essential employees should not report to campus and are not expected to work on Friday, even if they are still working remotely due to COVID-19, because of the potential for severe weather and power outages. Faculty members should not attempt to hold remote classes on Friday for the same reasons. The Office of Human Resource Management will send instructions for time entry for the weather-related closure to all timekeepers in a follow-up email.

Faculty who rely on refrigeration or have specific power needs related to their research should consider the potential for a power outage and contact the LSU Emergency Operations Center at if they have concerns or need assistance.
